  • Dear Jim, We’re so very sorry for your loss of Gloria. She was a very good friend growing up and we had so many fun times and shared memories. I remember when she met you and she was so very happy. I’ve been thinking about her so much lately and I’ll never forget her. May your memories of your life together bring you comfort. So sad…..

  • Very sorry to hear of Gloria’s passing. I was her cousin (son of Lawrence’s brother Harold) but I haven’t seen Gloria for many years-probably since we were teenagers. I’m sorry for your loss and will keep Gloria in my prayers. David DeCoste

  • Dear Jim, I am so sorry to learn of Gloria’s passing. Gloria was such a sweet girl! I was her cousin, daughter of Harold & Stella DeCoste. I last saw her at Mom & Dad’s service. I am so very sorry for your loss. Susan and Dave Bulawka

  • Jimmy – I am sorry sorry to hear that Gloria passed away. While distance kept us from seeing each other often, I am glad that we got the opportunity to get to know each other over the years and am thankful that we got together a couple of times. You & Gloria are in my thoughts and prayers.
